You give first generation students a leg-up!

As Faculty & Staff members we are committed to making Mines better and ensuring students from all backgrounds receive the best education possible.

This year's faculty & staff giving program is focused on supporting first generation students. Our goal is to understand what first-generation students bring to the table so we can ensure they are positioned for success at Mines.

Please get involved by marking your calendars with the upcoming events listed below and consider making a gift to The Bliss Endowed Scholarship to provide renewable scholarship awards to first-generation students, The Mines Fund or your favorite area on campus.

Upcoming lectures, pedagogy seminars and other social events

Giving is easy with a one-time or monthly gift through payroll deduction, credit card or a check payable to the CSM Foundation, with your designation in the memo line, to PO Box 912031, Denver, CO 80291-2031.

This year, you can also support Mines and your local community at the same time by participating in the Colorado Combined Campaign at
